Project Details

Ref: S-15
Name: 50 MW Photovoltaic (PV) power plant in Benban
Location: Egypt
Customer:  Alcazar
Business Area: Solar
Date: 2015 – 2016
Status: Ongoing


The customer is planning to build a 50 MW PV plant in Benban, Egypt. Prior to construction, a project of this kind requires a study to identify important data to estimate the potential production of a plant, to design the plant for optimum result and to reduce the uncertainty associated with such projects.

Firnas Shuman has been selected to conduct a bankable solar resource measurement campaign, including supply, installation, operation, and maintenance of a solar meteo-station.

  • Supply and install a solar meteo-station (including tracking unit and shading apparatus to measure direct, diffuse, and global solar irradiation as well wind speed, direction, ambient temperature, humidity, pressure, temperature of solar modules, and impacts of soiling);
  • O&M;
  • Data collection and monitoring;
  • Resource assessment;
  • Yield calculation;
  • Facilitation of consultation with all the stakeholders.
